================================================================================================
Overview:
    The overall tech level of Stefan Amaris' Rim Worlds forces was no match for that of the
    SLDF, but the Usurper did nonetheless field some impressive battlemechs in his elite
    divisions.  The Hound was was one of the more numerous of the home-built Rim Worlds' mechs.
    Approximately 200 were constructed.  Their role and tendency to be committed to the heaviest
    fighting in a true crisis means that few if any survived the war with the SLDF.

Capabilities:
    The Hound was built to compare favorably with its closest competitors, the Centurion and the
    Enforcer.  With a powerful suite of weapons and the heat sinks to use them effectively, a
    Hound could take on many heavy 'mechs with a good chance of success.

Deployment:
    Company strength units of Hounds were the heart of many battalions in the Usurper's elite
    divisions.  A line of Hounds was always an extremely dangerous target, capable of delivering
    debilitating fire at long range.  During the battle to retake Terra, one such company of
    Hounds held off a full combined arms regiment of SLDF forces trying to take a command post
    in the Rocky mountains for over three hours, giving the Amaris commanders time to escape,
    and considerably prolonging the battle.  The twelve Hounds eventually fell, but not before
    destroying over a battalion of SLDF 'mechs and tanks from their heavily covered positions.
